    Jamie's Kitchen's Note:

    This recipe was adapted from Saveur magazine though it was actually Entocotes au Poivre Vert (Strip Steaks with Green Peppercorn Sauce.) The sauce is what this recipe is all about the silky rich taste of this sauce is incredibly fabulous.

      There is something totally wrong with this recipe. The sauce never really thickened, it was way too sweet with so much port. I wasted a $20.00 bottle of good port and my guests had to eat the beef tenderloin with no sauce at all.

      This is very tasty. The next time I make this I will cut the sauce in 1/2 and add a little thickener, such as cornstarch mixed with a little cold water. Thanks, Jamie's Kitchen! Made for PAC Spring '09.
